Editing Services

Working Words: I strive to empower you to write with confidence and clarity in your own voice.







Collaborative editing is what I love doing the most! This editing service examines all aspects of your project: plot structure, character development, genre elements, stylistic choices, consistency, and grammar. (Similar to line editing.)


My feedback includes specific comments and suggested solutions to support you in creating the best work possible. This editing process is collaborative because I provide ongoing feedback throughout the project so that you have opportunities to ask questions along the way. I use general chapter notes, comments in Word, and Track Changes in Word to create an ongoing conversation





Copyediting is suitable for writers who already have a solid structure and need some support with grammar, punctuation, spelling, wordiness, clarity, and consistency. I provide you with comments, solutions, and feedback to improve readability, sentence structure, and consistency of tone, voice, and flow.


For writers who have already completed a collaborative edit (or structural, developmental, or stylistic edit), copyediting is a great way to ensure that your manuscript is ready for the proofreading stage.



I follow the Editorial Freelances Association  and Editors Canada guidelines for rates. Please contact me to receive a quote.


*Note: Most often projects end up being between $1,500-$2,500, depending on the type of editing and the length of the manuscript. Please message me about your specific project for an accurate quote.
